Group Health To Stop Some Coverage

Item: Group Health to stop covering small businesses: Employers with 50 people or less will no longer receive insurance/Maureen Dolan, Coeur d'Alene Press

More Info: A Seattle-based health insurance provider's decision to stop covering small employer groups in Idaho will leave 450 people in the Coeur d'Alene and Moscow areas without medical insurance come Jan. 1. Group Health's decision to discontinue insuring groups of 50 people or less is a business decision that has nothing to do with health care reform, said Bob Burden, the administrator for the organization's coverage area east of the Cascades.

Question: How many times have you had to go through the inconvenience of changing insurance companies as a result of changes made by your company or increasing cost?
